Loadsa questions lately from a practical pov for people who have been through treatment, so I apologise!
As posted the other day my last labs BEFORE I started taking Armour Thyroid a week ago were:
Free T3- 6.0 pmol/L. (3.1-6.8)
Free T4- 17.6 pmol/L (12-22)
TSH- 2.71 miU/L (0.27-4.2)
So on a dose of 30mg Armour a day, soon to go up to 60mg as a split dose (good idea or too quick??) within a week, hypothetically how long would it take to bring my TSH down to say 1.0, or on the other hand go HYPERthyroid?
I read somewhere and it worried me that someone started taking 60mg and went HYPERthyroid and subsequently.developed dvt/clots because of the effects on coagulation. Has anyone experienced/heard of this?
